Quarter or Mutation
Last solar week was about coming to meet. It started a Mercury retrograde, that is all about security and establishing a solid foundation for ourselves and our relationships. This solar week is about creating through our higher vision. It is all about self-expression and coming to grips with the expression of our individual direction. Last week was about the plutonic way, this week is about the plutonic direction – implementation through truth.
Yesterday, the sun and thus the main energy has left the fear-territory and the deep seated fears of the spleen chakra! The sun has moved into gate 1, which is pure yang, and we moved into the yearly quarter of mutation, the quarter of creation through authentic sacrifice, death and surrender. Death precedes rebirth.
All things have a beginning and all things have an end. The death of one thing is the birth of another. The end of this year and the trees letting go of their leaves (in the norther hemisphere) leads to the birth of the new year and to sprouting anew. Chiron is still in the very last minutes of gate 25.5, pointing us towards healing and finding the eternal child within us. The end of our old sense of self lets our old life fall apart and it is the awakening of our new and (hopefully) true self which precedes the beginning of our new life. Yet, in this process we first have to let go what we identified with for so long.

Failed relationships are the biggest initiator for most people, and the quarter of duality, that we just left behind, was all about relationships and looking at the potential future. Now it is time for the transformation that must follow the initiation, it's about being here in the Now with our own process. This can be a process of destruction and rebirth in order to live and create more authentically.
Needless to say, successful relationships can also bring about transformation and they do bring creation.
Next to the psychological manifestation, the other component is creation and mutation on the material plane.
The yearly quarter of mutation started with the channel of the beat, the channel of transformation and the channel of emoting being activated while the Throat chakra and the Ego are totally open. That's a lot of energy to empower individual direction. It is a lot of pressure and drive to rise up, to succeed and to find the right-minded people and higher forces who empower growth. The main theme of discovery and exploration is money, material manifestation and working with the like-minded.
5 November 2019 23:31 UTC: Beginning of the new week (gate 1) – channel of the beat (14.2 Mercury-2.1+Earth), 1 Sun, 34.6 Venus, 27.3 Uranus, channel of transformation (Mars 32.1 Saturn 54.1), channel of emoting (North Node 39.1-55.1 Moon), 38.1 South Node
The first half of this week is emotional as the moon is wandering through the solar plexus gates.
Trusting or doubting relationship potential. Sustaining creative work – or going for the inauthentic money

Sustaining creative work and making money obviously doesn't have to contradict, but it can. Money and funds are essential and they might come through secret relationships. The key question is whether it matches with our vision and direction in life – or whether it doesn't and whether it is only for the money. If someone doesn't want to become a doctor after their parents wish, but a goldsmith, that's their direction to be honored. If a seemingly good job offer doesn't feel right, it probably is not for us.
Problematic: doubting the potential of relationships, that are secretly unfolding, despite mentally understanding their correctness and potential. Abandoning self-expression for money only. Being overly doubtful, being afraid that something can't work and abandoning it – maybe for the inauthentic money. Selling out oneself. Needing the recognition and ego petting, even if it has nothing to do with who we are.
Productive: not letting ourselves be distracted by what is not for us. Being committed to the right path and to secretly unfolding authentic relationships. Not being discouraged by doubts, understanding the value of doubts, but not allowing them to keep us from going for the right things. Sticking to the right thing despite being afraid of failure. Taking only the opportunities that resonate. Having an enormous drive and energy to sustain self-expression. Sticking with one's creative projects and authentic work opens the potential for mutation, change and true creative potential.
Sticking to our inner truth and learning to have faith in the future
- 9 November 2019 18:47 UTC: Venus in 22.214.171.124 (Sagittarius) waxing quincunx to North Node in 126.96.36.199 (Cancer)
10 November 2019 2:09 UTC: Mercury in 188.8.131.52 (Scorpio) sextile Pluto in 184.108.40.206 (Capricorn)
Problematic: Being overwhelmed by doubt, losing focus, withdrawing and refusing to confront obstacles on our path. Being afraid of rejection and condemnation, thus not having the courage to speak our truth.
Productive: Learning to overcome doubt in regards to our path. Being patient with our unfolding path and focusing on doing the necessary detail work. Having faith in our path despite what others say. Not tolerating interference and staying committed to the right thing despite temporary retreat. Taking the time to evaluate and then confront obstacles. Speaking our truth, even when other don't understand or accept it.
The next week is mentally noisy and can bring structure, breakthrough and explanation.
